PDP flays Buhari, APC over Ak­pabio’s in­ves­ti­ga­tion by EFCC

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Saawua Terzungwe

The Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) has said in­ves­ti­ga­tion of Sen­a­tor Godswill Ak­pabio by the Eco­nomic and Financial Crimes Com­mis­sion (EFCC) was part of a ‘ploy’ by the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC)-led fed­eral gov­ern­ment to weaken the PDP ahead of the 2019 gen­eral elec­tions.

Ak­pabio, a former gover­nor of Akwa Ibom State and cur­rent Sen­ate Mi­nor­ity Leader was on Fri­day in­vited by the EFCC for in­ter­ro­ga­tion but later re­leased and asked to reap­pear Satur­day, over cor­rup­tion al­le­ga­tions lev­eled against him when he was gover­nor.
